For further information go to:

Lane Kawaoka is a real estate investor and entrepreneur known for his expertise in passive real estate investing. Born and raised in Hawaii, Lane discovered his passion for real estate while working as a construction engineer. Despite following the traditional path of higher education and a steady job, Lane realized that the conventional approach to building wealth was not fulfilling for him.

In 2009, Lane took a leap of faith and began renting out his own home, quickly realizing the financial benefits of passive income through real estate. This initial success sparked his interest in real estate investing and propelled him on a journey to achieve financial freedom.

Lane’s unique perspective on wealth building emphasizes the importance of living where you want and making decisions based on the numbers. He believes in optimizing one’s highest and best use of time, especially for professionals like doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants, and pharmacists who may not enjoy their day jobs. Lane encourages individuals in such careers to invest passively in real estate as a means to generate income and build wealth outside of their primary professions.

With his engineering background, Lane brings a methodical and analytical approach to real estate investing. He has grown his portfolio to include over 4,000 units and has become a leading expert in syndications and private placements. Lane’s success lies in his ability to leverage the power of passive investing, allowing him to step away from the day-to-day operations and focus on his financial independence and personal growth.

Lane is passionate about sharing his knowledge and experiences with others, aiming to empower individuals to take control of their financial futures. He is a sought-after speaker, educator, and mentor, providing valuable insights on passive real estate investing and wealth building strategies. Lane’s authenticity and commitment to helping others distinguish him from the “fake gurus” in the industry, as he truly believes in the power of real estate to create long-term financial stability and freedom.

In addition to his real estate endeavors, Lane is an advocate for living a balanced and fulfilling life. He values spending quality time with his family and encourages others to design their lives in a way that aligns with their personal goals and values. Lane’s journey serves as an inspiration to those seeking to break free from the traditional mold and forge their own path to financial independence and happiness.
